of positive reports this morning about jobs in america. here now jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the kind of news we really want to see. hiring on the upswing. it fell off during the swing. a couple of reports show promise. the labor department says first time weekly unemployment claims fell by 14,000 this week to the lowest level in 7 weeks. we hope for a trend in the right direction. private payroll processor adp says 157,000 new jobs were added to the economy in june. that was more than double the expectation and a lot better than may with only 36,000 new jobs and a promising sign going into the monthly jobs report for tomorrow. jobs still really lagging in a key piece of the economy that needs to improve to show better growth overall for the economy. also a couple of decent reports for local retailers. san francisco-based gap saw 1% sales gain across its three chains a lot better than expected and a nice change of pace. they have been struggling. ross stores saw sales increase 5% that. too beat expectations.
